Hi all,
I've done 2 consoles today (1 falcon and a Jasper) all going fine, and on the 3rd one im using the exact same points but just cannot get it to boot

Using
ft2r2 for B
Ft6u1 for C (tried ft6u7 as well by the TX diagram but I've had them boot with both)
Normal A
And the D point is what looks like a nand header on the lower left of the board (av port towards you) next to r8c2 (off top of my head, I'd need to double check that code)

Using rgh12_21.xsvf from 15432's timings
Dash 17510

Flash stock nand back and it boots fine but as soon as I try actually boot into xell it doesn't have any of it
Any suggestions?

I've had to leave for work hence no photos yet
I've listed the points I'm using for now, photos will come tonight when I get home

Could be your soldering problem.
Use flux, your soldering all are cold joints which could lead to problem.
Also do you want to try the normal D point? But that will require you to have a fine tip

I have changed to a different solder so it may be the solder that doesn't work as well as the old stuff

The d point under the X clamp? Means removing it right?

I have always used that one and never had a problem

I normally use 21 and it boots first time

Can you see any issues with anything with what I'm doing newsk?

I'm tempted to desolder everything and start again, see if that makes a difference
